What people are saying...

“What I love about Vivacious Gourmet is her ability to make gourmet food with recipes that feel attainable for me. Everything she has shared is so delicious and a bonus...they are good for me and my family.”

Jana W.

Her recipes cover everything from vegan to gluten free to dairy free to fully indulgent. She can take a recipe from her grandmother and add a whole new twist to it. She has the ability to create a table full of hors d'oeuvres to pair with gin martini’s, healthy snacks for a football game, to a full 6 course dining experience AND make it accessible for anyone to try.

Rachelle's recipes are a staple in our home! They are delicious, fun and EASY! It's clear that she cooks from the heart and always tries to put a healthy twist without sacrificing flavour! We love checking out what's new on Vivacious Gourmet and making a night out of it! Keep the GREAT food coming, Rachelle!
